Institutional Review Board (IRB)

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is responsible for recommending approval or disapproval of each proposed research project involving human subjects. IRB approval is necessary before work may begin on research studies.

The IRB meets on the second Tuesday of each month. Protocols should be submitted at least 2 weeks in advance of the meeting.

For more information on IRB requirements, submission processes, templates policies, and access to IRB Manager (online protocol submission and management tool), please contact:
